It all begins when Wade Kaplan receives a strange coded email from his uncle Henry, shortly before the old man's sudden and suspicious death. He sets off for Germany to attend the funeral with his father and his three friends Darrell, Lily, and Becca, only to discover that Uncle Henry left them yet another baffling message.

Soon, they are in a breathless race across the globe, running for their lives as a ruthless shadow organization chases them around every corner. Their only hope of saving themselves--and the world--is to find twelve magical relics from a hidden past.

The Forbidden Stone is the beginning of Tony Abbott's epic new series, a thrilling adventure packed with puzzles, intrigue, and action.

With engaging characters, a globe-trotting plot and dangerous villains, it is hard to find something not to like. Equal parts edge-of-your-seat suspense and heartfelt coming-of-age. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"
